5 Surprising Facts about Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers

Are you thinking of getting cosmetic dentistry veneers to improve the look of your smile? Before making your dental decision, check out these five facts.

  1. They Tame Tooth Sensitivity
    In addition to making teeth look brighter and more beautiful, cosmetic dentistry veneers can also make teeth less sensitive and stronger. According to dental care Collingdale experts, cosmetic dentistry veneers can significantly reduce tooth sensitivity because they cover the front of teeth to provide a barrier against the foods and drinks that make them feel very sensitive.
  1. May Not Endanger Enamel
    Thanks to advances in dentistry, veneers no longer always require extensive enamel removal. Your veneer dentist may actually be able to place your veneers with little to no dental damage.
  1. Can Reshape Your Face
    One of the greatest advantages of cosmetic dentistry veneers is how they can change the entire shape of your face. Based on your dental needs and desires, your veneer dentist can place veneers to do a serious makeover to widen your smile, accentuate your cheekbones, or make your face more symmetrical.
  1. Demand Delicate Eating
    Today, most veneers are crafted out of porcelain, which is very thin and fragile. To avoid chipping or cracking veneers, you must be extremely careful when eating harder foods like raw apples, carrots, crunchy vegetables, and meat on the bone. That’s why dental care Collingdale experts recommend chewing firmer foods with your back teeth to avoid damaging veneers on the front teeth.While this makes veneers more fragile than cosmetic dental bonding, veneers tend to last twice as long and look twice as good.
  1. They Are a Longer-Lasting Smile Solution
    While veneers may cost more than cosmetic dental bonding, they also last much longer. With proper care and cleaning, cosmetic dentistry veneers can continue looking great for up to 20 years. And unlike cosmetic dental bonding, which can stain over time, veneers are stain-resistant to keep your smile white and bright for a very long time.
